ServiceNation Welcomes its Newest Coalition Members
In the last year, ServiceNation has made exciting progress on a number of initiatives including the Save Service campaign, Mission Serve and our Cities of Service partnership. We haven’t done it alone though. We are successful because we have a robust coalition with members that believe, like we do, that service is a means for solving some of our country’s most pressing and enduring social problems. Our coalition was founded with just over 100 members and now has grown to include 275 members that help elevate service as a core ideal and problem-solving strategy in our society.
The coalition is still growing and we’d like to take the time to introduce the newest members to our coalition:
PROGRESS works to teach women and girls the importance of mastering and utilizing the skill of negotiation. Unfortunately, evidence shows that the tendency for women to negotiate is less than men. PROGRESS is pursuing gender equity by providing tools for women and girls to harness the power of negotiation through education. These efforts will effect an overall positive societal change with the advancement of women.
Founded by Dr. Joseph Bobrow, Roshi in 2006, The Coming Home Project, provides services for veterans who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan, their families and their service providers. The Coming Home Project is a nonprofit organization that incorporates a collaborative efforts to improving psychological, emotional, and spiritual relationship challenges that service members face during the various stages of deployment. The ultimate goal of the Coming Home Project is to replace the disjointedness caused by deployment and trauma with interdependence and re-established connections.
Team Rubicon helping to close the gap between large humanitarian disasters and disaster aid response time. Team Rubicon has pioneered a new form of disaster response while focusing on veteran reintegration in society. Team Rubicon’s incorporation of US military veterans, helps individuals returning home find a new form of service. Unique from other aid response teams, Team Rubicon, fields a small mobile team of military veterans and medical professionals. By uniting the two fields, Team Rubicon has formed a reaction force that provides large-scale relief through self-deployment.
ServiceNation is happy to welcome these organizations into our coalition. They each bring unique qualities and characteristics that will strengthen our coalition’s efforts to promote national service in America. ServiceNation wants to thank them for their hard work and efforts, along with the rest of our coalition members.
